James Gandolfini Passes Away at Age 51

Leave a comment


Today is a tragic day in Hollywood. Actor James Gandolfini, age 51, passed away yesterday of an apparent heart attack while traveling in Rome.  The tragic death appears to have occurred suddenly, and there is little news to share about his passing.  However, we here at RPW wanted to pay our respects to James Gandolfini.  We truly admired his work, and will forever be grateful for his talents and contributions to the television and film industries.  James Gandolfini gave so many phenomenal performances, but none more iconic than Tony Soprano from the smash hit, “The Sopranos” (which is still HBO’s #1 rated series ever with 13.4 million viewers tuned in for the Season 4 premiere in 2002).  Gandolfini gave us a character that will live on in American history for generations to come, so in turn we say thank you and may you forever rest in peace.  James Gandolfini is survived by his wife and two children. 

In honor of Mr. Gandolfini, we are sharing a beautiful tribute video of his work, created by the MovieClips Trailer channel on YouTube.
